Hi all,

I'm a 21-year-old Aussie female planning an extensive overseas trip, I really want to start it off with a contiki so I can find my feet a bit. At this point I am doing it alone and was wondering who else was considering doing the tour.

Also any information both positive and negative would be appreciated I could only find one quite negative travelogue so good impressions would be great.

One more question, which month is best out of January-March. I was thinking March because it might be a touch warmer?

Thanks heaps, I find this site so helpful.
